    The superiority is in the case.

    COOLING SYSTEM

    Cooling technology:
    Patented Total Liquid Submersion cooling

    Tank:
    Aerospace-grade engineered plastic

    Coolant:
    Synthetic-engineered Core Coolant

    Pump:
    Laing, high-GPM circulating style

    Blower:
    Ultra-quiet, high capacity capable of 250CFM

    Heatsinks:
    Thin-fin skived copper

    Cooling control:
    BIOS- and OS-settable cooling variables

    basically it's submerged in non-conducting liquid to keep it ultra cool.

    i can see that.
    i know cooling is important, but on a $20k computer, it should have some very good hardware to be cooled by the very good cooling system.

    Nothing special performance/hardware wise(nothing you can't get and put together yourself). It's just pricey components(IIRC, the CPU is about $1000-$1500 itself)...although the case and concept is pretty cool, but to me, it's just not worth it.

    To me, that's a down payment on a car or house:D

    Yeah I want to spend 20 grand on a computer to only wait few months for it to be out of date. If I am spending 20 grand on a computer it better be the best computer you can possible buy.

    LOL what an incredible rep-off! It doesnt even feature a Core i7 processor or even a X58 chipset. Those parts are already outdated except the card, but for that money you should be getting the GTX295. And about submersion, i am willing to bet that is non conductive oil. if you look at tomshardware, they have done something like this a while back and the temps it provided was not extreme, matching a good air cool setup at best. The only thing that needs to be cooled is the cpu, gpu and chipset (if overclocking) and maybe ever hardly ram.

    For 20k you can get a Core i7, 4 GTX295 (2 cards stacked = 8 gpus), at least 12gb of tri-channel ram, intel ssd in raid 0, and list can go on and be phased cooled on top of it.

    If I had 20 g's laying under my bed, I for damn sure would not spend it on a computer. I would go get an EVO X. Well... half of one... but with super low payments...

    actually, after giving it more thought... I think I'd go buy a low mileage EVO 9...
